Flutter – Dart SDK is not configured


I installed Flutter and set up Android Studio. Then I cloned an example of flutter on GitHub (https://github.com/flutter/flutter) and launched it in Android Studio, but it warns me "Dart SDK is not configured", this happened to my co-worker as well. But if I create a new project in Android Studio, no problem at all.

What I have done:

  1. Installed Flutter

  2. Installed Android Studio, along with Flutter plugin including Dart plugin

  3. Flutter run in command line works fine, all five tests passed. (See below)

Last week, I can run their example thru command line (in that dir),

flutter run 

but now I it shows some errors with Gradle.

Please review your Gradle project setup in the android/ folder.

Best Solution

I had the same problem after importing a flutter project from git. These are the steps to solve the problem.

  1. File->Settings->Language & Framework->Flutter
  2. Choose flutter SDK path: the first time we install flutter, we choose the location where the flutter should be installed. Choose this location.
  3. Click OK and the android studio will refresh. Carry on if the problem is solved.
  4. If you are still stuck with the error.
  5. Goto this link and install Dart.
  6. Goto the same place in settings, ..Language & Framework->Dart and chose the SDK location.

This solved the issues for me.
